Skincare 101: Essential Tips For Every Beauty Enthusiast

Want to make sure that you’re giving your skin the very best love and care? 

Keep reading as Introstem shares the most essential yet transformational skincare tips that every beauty enthusiast needs to know!

SPF is Non-Negotiable

It doesn’t matter how many high-quality skincare products you use – if you’re not also protecting your skin from the sun, they won’t be able to have much of an impact on your complexion. Why? Because the sun will immediately undo all of their work while causing even more damage to your skin at the same time.

This is why the most essential part of skincare is sun protection. Unfortunately, many people hate wearing sunscreen because of how mainstream formulas can often cause breakouts or leave a white cast on the skin.

The good news? Not all sunscreens do that. The Introstem VitisCell Facial Shield Cream SPF 30, for example, feels as though it melts into the skin immediately upon application. It doesn’t leave the skin looking pale either. Instead, its hydrating ingredients give the skin a plump and dewy finish while the antioxidants work to prevent and repair the appearance of UV damage.

Cleansing is Everything

Now that we’ve spoken about the most crucial element of caring for your skin, let’s move on to the second-most important; cleansing. This may seem like a simple step that doesn’t require much thought but how you cleanse your skin can make or break the rest of your skincare routine.

Why is cleansing so important? For a few reasons. Firstly, if you don’t cleanse your skin, you’ll be allowing all of the impurities that have attached themselves to your skin’s surface over the course of the day to delve deeper down into your skin’s layers. This mix of pollutants, oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and more will congest your skin and clog up your pores. Even worse, they’ll contribute to free radical damage, accelerating how quickly your skin ages. 

Cleanse your skin and not only will you not need to worry about all of that, but you’ll also be giving the rest of your skincare products a clear path to your skin cells. They won’t have to fight through a barrier of impurities. This easy access will allow your products to work more effectively.

With that said, picking the right cleanser is vital. If you’re wearing makeup or you have oily skin, give the VitisCell Foaming Bliss Purifier a try. Meanwhile, if your skin needs a gentler yet moisturizing cleanse, the Introstem Stem Cell Mousse Cleanser won’t let you down!

Get Your Skin Type Right

It goes without saying that choosing the right skincare products to use is key if you’re hoping to see big results from them. However, how do you actually go about picking the perfect products?

This is where your skin type comes into play. Your skin type will largely determine what your skin needs. For example, if your skin type is dry, this means that it lacks sebum. You’ll need to compensate for this by lavishing it with rich creams, just like the Introstem Stem Cell Night Repair. 

If, on the other hand, your skin is oily, then rich creams will likely only cause you to break out. Instead, you need lightweight formulas that will hydrate without weighing your skin down, which the Introstem ThermoStem Completion Cream does beautifully. This formula also boasts salicylic acid, which will help to keep your pores feeling clear and clog-free.

How do you know what your skin type is? 

Give your skin a cleanse and then leave it bare for 30 minutes. If your skin feels greasy and looks shiny, this indicates oily skin. Dry skin would feel tight and uncomfortable while looking rough and dry, and combination skin shares elements from both dry and oily skin types. Redness and inflammation would be a sign of sensitive skin. Once you’ve figured this out, you’ll be well-equipped to find the perfect products to meet your skin’s needs!

Hydration Should Be Provided in Layers

Many people think that hydration is something that only dry skin types need. However, this isn’t the case at all…

Hydration refers to moisture, not oil. Moisture is something that every skin type needs plenty of. All skin types can also suffer from dehydration, which is when the skin is lacking in water. If your skin type is dry, dehydration usually manifests as an increase in dryness and flakiness. If your skin type is oily, dehydration can actually make that oiliness even worse.

This is why it’s important to pay attention to hydration in your skincare routine. Slapping on a single hydrating product in between applying a variety of dehydrating, barrier-damaging formulas isn’t going to help. Instead, ideally, every step in your skincare routine should provide hydration to some extent. This way, you’ll be hydrating your skin in layers, which will help to lock all of that moisture into your skin.

We’ve already talked about the cleansers from Introstem and both contain a plethora of hydrating ingredients. Try following this up with a hydrating toner, such as the Stem Cell Facial Toner, before applying a couple of hydrating serums. Seal it all in with a hydrating cream and your skin will look wonderfully luminescent!

A Vitamin C Serum is a Must

There’s nothing wrong with keeping your skincare routine minimal. Sure, 10-step routines may be loved by some but others do better when sticking to the basics, meaning cleansing, moisturizing, and SPF.

However, even when trying to keep your skincare routine simplified, there’s one other product worth adding in; a vitamin C serum. Why? Because vitamin C can work wonders on the complexion. There’s so much research out there backing this up, confirming the way in which this powerful antioxidant can help with the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, dehydration, and more.

Of course, with so many vitamin C serums to choose from, finding the right product can seem like an overwhelming feat. The secret is to look for formulas that combine vitamin C with other antioxidants, which is exactly what the Stem Cell Vitamin C Serum does. This potent solution brings together two forms of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, grape stem cells, and a long list of other antioxidants. This enhances the visible effects of the vitamin C, stimulating improvements in the complexion so much sooner!

The Eye Area Benefits From Special Care

Eye serums and creams are just a marketing gimmick, right? 

Wrong, at least in some cases! Sure, some companies may simply repackage their regular facial moisturizers and promote them as eye creams but others create specialized formulas specifically for this area. 

Why does the eye area need extra care? Because the skin here is significantly thinner than the skin anywhere else on the face or body. This means that it’s more susceptible to damage. This is also why people usually see their eye area taking on fine lines and wrinkles before the rest of their face has succumbed to the appearance of aging.

If you’d like to keep your eye area looking fresh, smooth, and perky, eye care products are worth investing in. A good eye serum, like the Introstem Stem Cell Eye Serum, can be a game-changer. With peptides, vitamins, and botanical extracts, it provides everything that the delicate skin around your eyes could need. 

Of course, if you’re already struggling with certain visible skin concerns around your eyes, look for products that can help with this. The VitisCell Radiance Dark Circle Eye Cream, for example, will work to lighten the look of dark circles under the eyes while also tackling the appearance of puffiness. It will give your eye area a much brighter and healthier-looking finish!

Face Masks Are Worth Your Time

Stem Cell Rejuvenation Facial & Eye Mask

Do you really need to use a face mask each week? 

No, it’s not essential. However, a face mask can be transformational for the complexion, making it worth adding one into your weekly routine. Sure, it may require an extra 10-15 minutes of your time, but your dedication will pay off big style.

Take the Stem Cell Rejuvenation Facial & Eye Mask from Introstem. These hydrogel masks are exceptionally hydrating. They’ll saturate your skin with moisture and antioxidants, pushing those ingredients in. Remove the mask and your face will be sporting a gorgeous glow!

Meanwhile, the ThermoStem Mask is ideal if you want your skin to look brighter. It’s a thermal clay mask, meaning that it gently heats up on the skin. This enables the clay to work even more effectively at removing excess sebum and impurities.

Don’t Forget About Your Neck, Chest, and Body

Many people often make the mistake of concentrating their skincare efforts on the face, neglecting the skin everywhere else. However, the skin on the rest of your body needs some attention too!

When it comes to your neck and chest specifically, the skin here is actually just as fragile as the skin on the face. To care for this area correctly, treat it to the same skincare products that you use on your face. You may also want to invest in a few formulas designed for this area, such as the Stem Cell Revitalizing Chest & Neck Mask. 

In terms of the rest of your body, hydration is key. The VitisCell Body Butter is the formula to go for if you have any dry areas on your body. It will leave your skin feeling incredibly soft and supple!  If you’d prefer lighter coverage, the Stem Cell Hand & Body Cream is a more lightweight moisturizer. It will provide hydration without leaving you dealing with body acne breakouts!
